The Lyrics

Obvious. This parody aims to illustrate how the super-rich corporate executive need to have their profits taken from them to achieve genuine social justice.
I am justified to take money
Seizing wealth, I'm really so kind
Times aren't changing, the planet warms
But the warming's gonna finish when the rich get taxed.

Rob all the bosses, that's all right
General strike in each working day
We must fight the worst of the bosses' rules
We'll run out of time eventually sitting passively here.

Fight the rich, fight the rich
'Til the rich are taxed
To their last cent as a matter of fact
Fight the rich, fight the rich
'Cause struggle is the only way
It's the way we must go
To help all of us.

We don't win by making games
Sell ourselves to slavery's arms
We can't like it, earth warming, no
We must break down the machine till the rich get taxed.

Fight the rich, fight the rich
'Til the rich are taxed
To their last cent as a matter of fact
Fight the rich, fight the rich
'Cause struggle is the only way
It's the way we must go
To help all of us.

Rich, rich, the rich get taxed
Rich, rich, the rich get taxed.
